Sharing Stories – The Good, the Bad, and the Way Forward After Career Breaks – Hosted by WIB
March 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Career breaks happen, from redundancy to maternity leave and any number of reasons in between. Perhaps you are returning from a recent career break and looking for advice or considering a sabbatical but are worried it will damage your career.
Our webinar panel is a group of women who have seen it all! Sharing personal experiences from their career journeys and with expert advice from iRelaunch, which specializes in supporting women returning to the workforce, this will be an unmissable opportunity to ask everything you ever wanted to know about this tricky topic.
